AQA GCSE Psychology Paper 2Watch
How do you guys revise for psychology? And did you find the first paper hard?
I expected more questions about experiments tbh, so I thought it was relatively easy. However I did mess up a few questions ;(
Does anyone know if the grade is averaged out between the two exams?
[Edit] Just looked it up and each paper is 50% of your final grade. Hopefully I can fix my mistakes in the second exam then.
I'm struggling with the aggression unit, and haven't found a past paper question on the psychodynamic or frustration aggression hypothesis explanation! Does anyone know how you'd answer something like 'briefly outline the psychodynamic explanation of aggression' or 'briefly outline the frustration aggression hypothesis explanation of aggression'? Thanks
So you start off stating that the theory suggests that we have a drive to self-destruct, called Thanatos, it causes our aggression to builded up and after a point, it releases. We use Ego Defence Mechanisms like displacement, being aggressive towards others, and sublimation, channeling our aggression towards into acceptable activities, to protect ourselves. However, it was later suggested that we need a trigger to release the anger and that trigger is frustration. Frustration can be caused by simple things like losing arguments and being late, these things will cause us to act aggressively.
